Localization Will Be The New Black

Despite being a trend that had gained force over the past decade, especially in Europe after the 2008 crisis, few were the times in which I saw the term “localization” being defended didactically in the context of global economy. Generations Y (born from 1982 to 1994) and Z (born between 1995 and 2010), especially the latter, which is also known as post-millennials or centennials, already showed a natural preference for localization in their lifestyles and consumption habits. (De Castro, 2020)

A new world reality requires a brand new approach

Download our white paper bellow to get full access to the program developed in Rovolon, Italy.

The fourth industrial revolution was already knocking on our doors long before this new pandemic. Although technology had already started to empower citizens and significantly increase the role of our cities, the real disruption was never the technology itself, but the speed of change. Take all this, multiply it by a thousand and you will have a small idea of the reality that awaits us post-covid19. Welcome to the new world of the KM 4.Zero economy, a new paradigm that combines the super local (km zero) with the hyper-technological (4.0).


La quarta rivoluzione industriale stava già bussando alle nostre porte prima di questa pandemia. Sebbene la tecnologia avesse già iniziato a potenziare i cittadini e ad aumentare il ruolo delle nostre città, la vera perturbazione non fu mai la tecnologia stessa, ma la velocità del cambiamento. Prendi tutto questo, moltiplicalo per mille e avrai una idea della realtà che ci aspetta post-covid19. Benvenuti nel mondo dell’economia KM 4.Zero, un paradigma che combina il superlocale con l’ipertecnologia.


A quarta revolução industrial já batia nas nossas portas muito antes desta nova pandemia. Embora a tecnologia já havia começado a empoderar os cidadãos e a aumentar o protagonismo das nossas cidades, a verdadeira disrupção nunca foi a tecnologia em si, mas sim a velocidade das mudanças. Pegue tudo isso, multiplique por mil e você terá uma pequena ideia da realidade que nos espera pós-covid19. Bem-vindo ao mundo da economia KM 4.Zero, um paradigma que combina o superlocal ao hipertecnológico.
